    • New book being written online – Facilitation tricks and techniques
      Last time I wrote a book (Visualization Examples) I decided to do it publicly online. That was a fantastic experience, which I also wrote a blog post about. It was great fun and I got tons of valuable feedback. Now I’ve started to write a new book and I’ve decided to have the same approach. It’s […]
    • Core Protocols – effective communication
      – Having rules for communication is stupid! – What was your intention with calling the rules stupid? – Well, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean anything negative towards you, of course. I just don’t find such rules necessary at all. We have been communicating with each other since we were small. – Okay, I understand what […]

    • Group Vs team
      I have seen many “Agile teams” working quietly without talking to their teammates. Every day they are at work sharp 9 AM, pick up a user story from the backlog, finish it and go.  Their interaction with other team members is limited. But each one is really happy as the are achieving something. This is […]
    • How to build resilient Scrum teams ?
      Some time back I attended a session on raising resilient kids. I learnt that building resilience is all about building the ability to bounce back and learn from all kinds of adversity—including setbacks, threats, stress and trauma.   Here are some notes from the session.

    • On the Essence of Business Analysis
      I recently had the opportunity to talk shop with Dave Saboe, who runs the Mastering Business Analysis website and accompanying podcast. The topic of our conversation was the "essence" or underlying "why" of business analysis, and how focusing on that "essence" or "why" can benefit the individual analyst, and the organization as a whole.

    • Consultants, Certificates and Conferences: Let’s Try Something Else
      Few people are incentivized to speed up change, continuous learning is rarely validated, and the feedback cycles between authors and users are long and slow, or absent. The post Consultants, Certificates and Conferences: Let’s Try Something Else appeared first on NOOP.NL.
    • Fake Agile
      Many attempts at achieving business agility are misguided and fake. But I consider the glass half full, not half empty. Fake Agile is a signal to do better. The post Fake Agile appeared first on NOOP.NL.

    • Product Manager is not a “CEO” of their products
      From the time product management has been around, there is a notion that to be effective, product managers should behave like CEOs for their product. A belief that the successful product managers have the power to make decisions for their product like CEOs do for a company. Others can provide all the input they want, but the final decision […]
    • Fear of Missing Touch – How to lose your way with your target market
      You all have likely heard the term FOMO – “Fear of Missing Out” – the fear that makes us buy products/services because everyone else is doing it and for the fear of missing out on something that others are getting out of it. A fear that has been proven to move products – people wanting stuff […]
